    Well, I was in such a hurry to get the chickens and their pooh outside, I didn't take many photos of the last few steps. If you have any questions, you are more than welcome to ask away!!

    I can't argue with you ChemicalchiCkns! I would add a great miter saw :0) The curved doors weren't nearly as hard as they look. I seriously tied one end of a string to a thumb tack and the other to a pencil, push the pin in my center and voile! instant half circle, no painful measuring!

    Thank you RainMom!
    OK, so I giggled when I read your post, because I am guilty! There are 15sqft + 5sqft (or so) for the nesting boxes. I will have 8 chicks (6 if anyone asks!) where I'm only allowed 6. So if I narrow it down to 4sqft/chicken and add in the nest box space, I'm over by 3 chickens! They will be allowed out in the yard daily, since someone is always home (and could hide two chickens, if needed). I also read that 4 chickens/nest box, so I hope to be good there. Oh, and it's pretty tall, so I plan to angle the tree branch upward to utilize all the floor space I can.

    that's super fancy! How many hens do you think it will fit?
